Megan & Angharad Phillips
|Name:||Megan & Angharad Phillips|
|Club:||Morfa TTC and Halton TTC|
We were given a table tennis table as a Christmas present simply for us to play for fun; after enjoying our first taste of the sport we decided to join the local club, and the rest has gone from there.
By now, we have both secured places on the Welsh team.
The two of us are very much enjoy the competing and travelling that's attached to a career in table tennis – playing for Wales has taken all over the world – from China to Skegness!
Playing table tennis as two sisters is also very special to us. It means we have a constant training partner at hand, and it means that we can celebrate each other's success – as well as achieving our own successes whilst competing as a team, like when we won the National doubles competition for under-18's - at 12 years of age.
Both of us would love the opportunity to reach the Commonwealth Games in 2010, but of course, the ulitmate aim – reaching London 2012 – it's what all athletes want.
It would mean that all the hours, all the work and all the sacrifices have been worth it – we wouldn't be able to put what it would mean to us into words!
